The Shire – Lord of the Rings inspired travel poster
Posted 12 months ago and submitted by Matt Bain | Share link:

Last year I worked on a series of pop culture inspired illustrations, presenting a number of locations from movies in a modernised retro travel poster style. This is one of my favourites from that series, the Shire.

Working on this illustration allowed me to focus on improving my environment illustrating skills, requiring me to gain a better understanding of colour and light in order to capture depth and present a much more believable scene. I’m extremely happy with the result and the skills I gained on that journey have served me well on many of my latest projects, so this illustration has a very special place in my heart.
